My apologies to you all for the unintentional silence about Boston activities and plans, especially concerning a reissue of the first two Boston albums.

The song "Corporate America" by a mysterious unknown group called DOWNER'S REVENGE has risen from oblivion to #1 on MP3.com's progressive rock chart in just one week.
There was no corporate marketing or promotion whatsoever for this MP3.com debut, just the band and their friends emailing the link to other listeners. The music and the message in the song took over from there and created a snowball, or maybe an avalanche!
